Guldsmeden Hotels in Denmark
Guldsmeden Hotels are founded on the basis of love of good hostmanship, and the hotels are all operated by dedicated – but untraditional and unorthodox – guidelines within sustainability and ecology.
All hotels are Green Globe and Gold-Ø-certified (the official Danish label for 90-100% organic produce). Sandra and Marc Weinert opened the first Hotel Guldsmeden in Guldsmedgade in Århus in 1999.
Today, in addition to the now 27 rooms in Århus, Guldsmeden Hotels encompasses 7 properties in total.
Innate curiosity, a wish for continuous growth and improvement, and a sense of fun at facing new challenges is what drives us every day. The entire Guldsmeden Hotels group, in Denmark as well as abroad, stands on the shoulders of our own history, which began with the then 15-room hotel in Guldsmedgade in Århus.
The Guldsmeden Hotels are Green Globe certified, which is one of the most exacting certifications available to the hospitality sector.
Green Globe´s 360-degree sustainability management system ensures their very best efforts in every aspect of the daily operations of the hotels.
Green Globe audits its members once a year, and demand a 5% improvement on a given area. This ensures their continued commitment to keeping it green.
The Ø-label is regulated by the Danish Ministry of Food & Agriculture, and the golden Ø is only given to restaurants with a percentage above 90 in regards to organic produce.
Guldsmeden hotels are audited by a representative from the ministry 3 times per year, and our most recent score was 98,6% organic!
All Guldsmeden Hotels have achieved the official Golden Ø label, signifying above 90% organic food.
